but this is obama/biden politics. biggest effort ever to try to change gun control laws, doesn't mean it will work. but they will try. >> senator feinstein said it was an uphill road. will the administration lower expectations, maybe concentrate on the background checks and not so much the assault weapons ban. >> background checks are enormously popular and have a better chance of passage. it seems based on vice president biden emphasized yesterday and what some on capitol hill are saying, better to get the low-hanging fruit, go for the measures that could build momentum. pass those, maybe come back. the president feels passionately about the issue. any parent can look at his face when he talks about newtown and know it's personal. and the best way to channel that desire, is get some victories and build momentum. try to pass a whole big package with a ban on some weapons, a real hot button, could cause the entire effort to collapse. he doesn't want that. >> and the 2008 campaign, the president and secretary of state hillary clinton appearing on "60 minutes." want to get your thoughts after this. >

, that can backfire. this is obama/biden politics going forward now. going outside of washington to try to change public opinion and remake how people think about issues. gun control, as i said, biggest effort ever to try to change the gun control laws. doesn't mean it's going to work, but the president and the vice president are going to try. >> senator feinstein said it well, it's an uphill road. will the administration lower its expectations? you know, maybe concentrate on the background checks and not so much the assault weapon ban? >> the background checks are enormously popular and clearly have a better chance of passage. what it seems based on what vice president biden emphasized yesterday and what some on capitol hill are saying, better to get the so-called low-hanging fruit. better to go for the measures that could build some popularity. and maybe some momentum. pass those and then maybe come back. the president feels passionately about this issue. any parent can look at his face when he talks about newtown and know for him it's personal, and it's important. and the best way to

group have met and decided. >> reporter: but many here acknowledge the political chime mat has changed since president obama wants 7 -- -- bam ma won 70 -- obama won 70% of the latino vote. the president will push for public support beginning with his speech in las vegas this afternoon. susan mcginnis, cbs news, washington. >>> a new cbs poll finds that 51% of americans believe illegal immigrants working in the u.s. should be able to stay. that's provided they apply for citizenship. another 20% believe immigrants should stay but only as guest workers. and 25%. of those asked want illegal immigrants deported back to their native countries. >>> the f.b.i. is reporting a firearms background check skyrocketed following the december shooting in newtown, connecticut. the agency reported the second highest week. many in the firearm industry predicted that gun sales would increase after the shootings as gun enthusiasts brace for stricter gun laws. >>> prosecutors say it was a case of excessive force that turned to murder. the culpeper police officer charged says he shot and killed a wo

and sounded like a grouch attacking president obama. a very political speech which i thought was discordant yesterday. there were two -- captain kelly, gabby giffords's husband, and the captain of the bald moore county sheriff's department james johnson who spoke very powerfully articulately and eloquently for common sense gun control measures, and then the other side of the panel, there were three gun nuts on the panel. david coppel, a professor from denver, a woman gail trotter, and wayne lapierre from the nra. gail trotter was out of her mine. i mean, she said guns -- i got the exact quote here -- that guns have to -- guns keep women safe. guns keep women safe. guns make women safe is the exact quote. and every mother needs an ak-15 in the home to protect their kids. and of course wayne lapierre comes back and says the only answer is we have to make every school an armed camp. >> it's time to throw an immediate blanket of security around our children. about a third of our schools right now have armed security already, because it works, and that somebody is grow

political realignment underway in this country. and wliel obama realigns, the republicans are in decline. and they really have three choices. one of which they've seenl to have already gotten rid of. secondly, they can destabilize the economy. that's what they tried to do for years moving up toward the 2012 election. it didn't work. but i think they might try it again. paul ryan on meet the press last sunday sounded very interesting in letting the sequestration go into effect, which we saw today would have bad effects on the economy. third, in lincoln's phase, they could disenthrall themselves. but when you look at what happened to marco rubio in the last day, senator david vitter of louisiana called him amazingly naive. i think the republican party is trapped between what it has to do to succeed and survive and its tea party elements which are going to ghand purity. >> now when you look at cynthia, the fact that american people say clearly that any number opposed support the president's agenda, 53% support same-sex marriage, 62% support a path to citizenship for immigrants. 80% say clim

is meaningless in politics. i chicago magazine article from 2006 in which barack obama was quoted in 2004 saying he wouldn't run and in 2006 saying he had no intention of running for president. >> the thing that i would be excited about is that hillary clinton would be the perfect democrat to move the health care pendulum even further where most americans want it to go. she is an advocate of universal health care, if you can get it there, which i think would be absolutely the best thing for the country. here she is at a town hall when she was asked about her future plans. this is interesting. >> i do want to see more women compete for the highest positions in their countries. and i will do what i can, whether or not it is up to me, to make a decision on my own future. i right now am not inclined to do that. but i will do everything i can to make sure that women compete at the highest levels not only in the united states, but around the world. >> you know, the big issue right now for the president is getting immigration reform passed. >> right. >> that was the issue that somewhat became problemat

connell. >> some have said it was it was indelicate of me to suggest that our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny president obama a second term. but the fact is, if our primary legislative goals are to repeal and replace the health spending bill, to end the bailouts, cut spending and shrink the size and scope of government, the only way to do all of those things is to put someone in the white house who won't veto any of these things. >> after that, democrats worried republicans were trying to annihilate the democratic party, in part by trying to destroy unions, the most vivid example of that, wisconsin. the republican governor successfully pushed a bill that stripped collective bargaining rights for most public unions. ohio and michigan followed scott walker's lead with mixed success. and now it seems the tables have turned. now if you believe boehner, the democrats want to annihilate the gop. so the talkback question for you, do you agree with boehner? will obama try to annihilate the republican party?, or tweet me @carolcnn. i'll be right back.

that president obama is not looking to moderate and move to the middle but is instead looking for a political fight. >> i decided not to comment between the election and the inauguration because i wanted to see what kind of president we're looking at here? what kind of path and trajectory he was putting his administration on. all of the statements and all of the comments lead me to believe he is thinking more of a political conquest than political compromise. and that is my concern. jon: ryan also focused on the nation's fiscal crisis saying only significant spending cuts, not tax reform, will solve the deficit problem. that is something is he thinks the president is missing. >> i don't think that the president thinks we actually have a fiscal crisis. he has been reportedly saying to our leaders we don't have a spending problem, we have a health care problem. that leads me to conclude he thinks we ought to have more government-run health care and rationing. i don't think that is going to work. jon: let's get back to karl rove. karl, what about his thoughts on a president bent on conquest? >>

global zero that favors eliminating all such weapons. >>> political insiders say it looked more like a campaign event than a presidential speech. president obama pushed for immigration reform before an enthusiastic crowd in las vegas yesterday. his proposal is very similar to one being put forth by a group of bipartisan senators. >> action must follow. we can't allow immigration reform to get bogged down in an endless debate. >>> and obviously, this is -- there's certainly -- the chances are higher now that something is going to happen on this issue compared to years past. the biggest hurdle, though, is that folks who aren't too crazy about this idea are saying in order for these things to happen, let's focus on border security. if all these folks will just flood into the country, it makes no difference what we're doing on the legislative side of things. so border patrol at the same time we're creating this pathway. >> but something is going to be done. at this point, given the number of latinos that voted in this election, both sides of the aisle realize this is a voting bloc they n

as imimprobable, because we had that long, hard primary campaign. in politics and democracies, sometimes you win elections, and sometimes you lose elections. i worked very hard, but i lost and president obama asked me to be secretary of state. said yes. why? because we both love our country. >> this interview will air on sunday. the fact that they did this joint interview, surprising to you? did you read anything into it? >> they have certainly come a long way from unity. standing there with clenched smiles. but what you saw there, they both have gone past it, principles on both sides, they like each other, trust each other. not best friends, but i think the president wanted to do something nice for her, the most traveled secretary of state, done a lot for him this is his way of giving her a big nod. >> in addition, do you think the president thinks he owes the clinton politically? >> no doubt he owes them for certain things. for him coming along during the first administration, his work during the re-election campaign. they can take credit for helping him along. whether he owes them remains to

. obama, who was 14 when the war ended, the u.s. appeared to have escaped the deficit legacy of vietnam that clouded politics for generations. if mr. hagel is confirmed, the three most prominent figures apart from the president in the countries foreign policy debates -- mr. kerry in the state department, mr. hagel at the pentagon, and mr. mccain, will all derive a substantial part of their legitimacy from vietnam experiences. mr. mccain's relationship with mr. kerr it isy the striking tale of the lingering influence of the vietnam. more than a decade later, mccain traveled to massachusetts to campaign against mr. kerry. yet the pair worked so closely in the cause of reviving relations with vietnam that they became friends. when mr. kerry appeared at a senate confirmation hearing last week, he was introduced by mr. mccain, who praised his ' exemplary statesmanship.' mr. mccain's relationship with mr. hagel what has gone the opposite way. 'i admire him and consider is friendship to be a treasure of inestimable value to me,' mr. mccain said in 2001. by the time mr. mccain became the presid
